that the obama administration decimated al qaeda. that's something that rubs these republican senators the wrong way. i will tell you what she told them, i'm told, inside the classified briefing this morning, what she meant was it was the core of al qaeda, that's what the obama administration has decimated. but these republican senators think she's lef the impression it's al qaeda in general. last thing i will tell you i was told she did say to the republican senators behind closed doors she regrets saying what she said because she knows it was simply not right. >> where does this go from here? obviously investigating intelligence officials as well, i imagine? >> yes. as i said, the acting director of the cia also in this room. and senators, republicans and democrats, are not thrilled with the information that they got publicly or privately. but the -- what goes on from here more meetings. she's back here, we believe, this afternoon, tomorrow she has a meeting with one senator, bob corker of tennessee, probably others. she's going to make the rounds and she's going to keep trying to persuade sen
that people within the obama administration as well as the campaign were legitimately fearful of huntsman early on. the fact that jon huntsman wasn't able to get a word in edgewise in talking about foreign policy though he was the only primary candidate that had any foreign policy experience told you how misguided the republican party was. now they're able to look back and hopefully have jon huntsman or someone like him be part of the conversation four years from now because i do like jon huntsman a lot. >> thank you both for joining me. we'll see what happens. less than four years away till the next presidential election. thank you both for joining us. >>> 'tis the season is travel. we'll show you ho you the nation's airports and roadways are faring today and what it may mean for the hustle and bustle closer to christmas. >>> i'm dr. sanjay gupta. this week on "the next list" meet max little, a math wiz and innovator with a surprising goal. >> my name's max little. i'm aiming to screen the population for parkinson's disease. >> max little has a bold idea. what if doctors could detect par
interviews saying that the obama administration has decimated al qaeda. what senator ayotte and other senators have said is that was misleading because she knew in a classified way that al qaeda might have been behind it. so that is what one -- two of the reasons why at least senator ayotte said that she is troubled. and she said that she is still not ready to say that she will vote for her. not only that, but she's still -- she still has a threat to block her nomination if susan rice is nominated. >> and is that the end of it, or are there future meetings? is there going to be more consultation, or is that that? >> reporter: no, that is not that. that is the beginning of this for sure. we understand that the ambassador is likely to be back later today for more meetings. ted barrett heard from the republican from tennessee that he has a meeting with susan rice tomorrow. again, just like today's meeting. that was at the request of susan rice. she is definitely making the rounds. she's trying to explain herself. but at least with these three republican senators this morning who were --
's diplomatic feat helps restore a record tarnished by questions over how the obama administration handled the attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi. will the cease-fire hold? hillary clinton, whose husband, president bill clinton, tried but failed to broker a peace agreement between israelis and palestinians knows only too well how tenuous true peace can be. >> after that will trip which turned out, by the way, to be 11 days on the road all the way over to australia, then back through asia and then to the middle east and then home, secretary clinton is back here in washington. she's here for thanksgiving, and so far, as we've been reporting, that cease-fire appears to be holding. fred. >> all right. in the meantime, hillary clinton has made it very clear that she would likely leave this position at the end of her term. topping the list of those that might be nominated would be s s susan rice. she's been speaking for the first time in response to so much criticism that she has received on how she handled that attack in benghazi, libya. what more can you tell us about what she is saying a

meetings. does she need to go back there? does the obama administration need to get involved? do they need to be worried that you have the egyptian president now who seems tow to be more powerful than he was three days ago? >> seems to be. it depends. we'll see what the outcome of the talks are today. the u.s. officials have to be concerned. not only -- again, just for egypt, but for the entire arab spring. they see here, you know, power being seized. they're wondering -- they know that they've got a financial sword that they can hang over egypt's head. egypt wants u.s. support. diplomatic too. in order to maintain that, it is going have to cut off that supply of smuggled arms that are the source of these weapons. you know, hamas right now is asking that the airport in gaza as well as the seaport be opened up. i don't think that's going to happen. i think morsi is going to be under a tremendous amount of pressure to prove that he can do what's needed. >> let's turn the topic here because this is something we're going to be watching very closely tomorrow, and it really is getting a lot of a
the course of these interviews that the obama administration has decimated al qaeda. the point these republican senators have been making is that that was a political statement because that served the white house well, to say that kind of thing before the election, because this was a big part of the president's campaign. >> interesting. >> that he got rid of bin laden. did she know the classified information? if so, why did she say that publicly about al qaeda when she may not have been able to talk about al qaeda with regard to this attack but might have known about it. >> so mccain said rice asked for this meeting. in light of what dana just said, how can rice win him over? >> look, i don't think it's about rice winning him over. i don't think this is about susan rice as much as it is about the unanswered questions of benghazi. we must understand something. there's very little leverage that senators in the minority have. one of the few things they can do is really make nominations and confirmations difficult. it's part of our system of checks and balances. i've seen it happen

ryan of wisconsin. >>> to to politics now. today might be your lucky day. the obama administration is taking its tax fight to twitter asking you to speak out on the bush tax cuts using the hash tag my2k. that is the estimated amount in tax hikes the administration says a middle class family of four could face if the bush tax cuts expire on the middle class. but the white house isn't limiting its efforts to social media. president obama is heading to pennsylvania on friday where he'll make his pitch to extend existing tax breaks for families making $250,000 or less. joining me now cnn contributor granderson and republican strategist ron bonjean. welcome to both of you. >> good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> minutes ago we heard from eric cantor, part of the gop leadership. he was talking about avoiding the fiscal cliff and he said what republicans want on the table, what must be on the table, medicare and medicaid. denot mention social security. so, l.z., i guess i just want your thoughts about that. i guess now we know what republicans want in return for those tax hikes on the
. and if you do look at how president obama has handled himself as president, he has sort of cultivated this team of rivals atmosphere within this administration. he had a hard fought campaign with hillary clinton. and then he went on to make her secretary of state. does that mean he's going to name mitt romney to his cabinet? i talked to a democratic official who told me she would be shocked if that were to occur. and that this -- this should be an interesting discussion when you look at some of the things that mitt romney said in the days after the election. he had that conference call with those donors where he talked about, well, the president won because he was giving out gifts to minority groups and so forth. so there may be some fence mending going on, but there may also be a discussion of ideas. mitt romney talked about ideas during the campaign, that the president says he respects and likes. and some of that has to do with this fiscal cliff situation, brooke. mitt romney talked about loopholes and deductions that could be curtailed and that obviously is part of the discussion.
